    The money has gotten funny.

    Branch Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsStarting MT pay is higher of all rental car companies. You get paid to sell optional services. The better you sell, the more money you make.

    ConsThe board does what ever it takes to make the stock look good. This includes paying bonuses late. I have bought toilet paper from home before because all spending was cut off. I see a cash flow problem. I was a huge Hertz promoter until my bonus checks stoped. Now no one can tell us when they will start. I no longer would recommend this company to a friend to work for.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour employees are your greatest asset. I have no problem working long hours with little help. I do see a problem with not being paid our commission or bonuses on time. Get HR ready because they are going to be busy replacing your non paid employees when they leave for financial reasons. I am surprised this hasn't hit the media yet.

    Low pay, high stress and no opportunities.

    Emergency Roadside Agent (Current Employee) Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsHR and Supervisors(TPLs) will work with you on numerous issues, but you have to make sure you have all your paperwork in line. Employees are generally nice and empathetic.

    ConsLow compensation for work required and raises do not keep up with inflation. Mandatory overtime due to bad hiring practices. They will increase your work load without increasing your pay. Benefits and incentives are comically bad. No back-up systems for system outages. Cares more about metrics than customers. Management seems impervious to change. Requires a bachelors to become a supervisor, meaning that merit is not rewarded. Paid Time Off is subject to approval, it can also be cancelled at a whim. Most people quit within in their first 6 months.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensate your employees appropriately and they will stay. Stop rewarding seniority and reward merit. Stop adding processes to systems that currently work. Get rid of your CEO and most of your upper management, find some talent to replace them. Make sure that the product works. Stop removing customer and employee incentives. There are so many things that could change, but like I said in the "Cons" section...
